The Samsung Galaxy Note 3, which came out just a few months ago, has been a tremendous success for Samsung, as it has once again managed to master the art of providing a large screen in a portable device.
Despite possessing one of the largest screens in a mobile phone till date, the Galaxy Note 3 is not all bulky and it continues to be the benchmark of the phablet segment. Samsung has been launching a new flagship every 12 months and it is set to continue with the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 coming as an official announcement in the next few months.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be the replacement of the hugely successful Galaxy Note 3. Despite the short time gap between the two phones, Samsung is set to introduce several new features for this upcoming flagship.
The Galaxy Note 3 is at the forefront of several new aspects like air touch and so on. They helped the phone to recognise a hovering finger, which allowed the phone to support several new gestures. The Galaxy Note 3 offered a slightly bigger screen compared to the previous version, but it was not vastly different in terms of technology. The Galaxy Note 4 could be a game changer in this regard since it is expected to come with a 4K display unit.
The much improved resolution is expected to bump up the pixel density to new levels, which are seen in the industry. The screen size, however, is not expected to significantly differ from the Galaxy Note 3.
The company has already entered into the octa-core processor specifications with the Samsung Galaxy S5, but the Galaxy Note 4 could be the game changer by becoming the first mainstream android phone to offer 64-bit support. Currently, only the iPhone is expected to provide this support, which will enable app developers to develop apps that will run on every platform. Apart from the 64-bit support, the Galaxy Note 4 could also provide a huge bump in RAM as well.
This is not to say that the Galaxy Note 3 is not powerful. In fact, it is one of the most powerful thanks to its snapdragon quad core processor, which is not only fast, but is also very reliable as well. Samsung also provides an octa-core version of the device, which will run on the Exynos chipset. The phone running on the snapdragon processor will have the Adreno GPU at heart, while the phone using the cheaper Exynos chipset will resort to the Mali GPU.
Samsung appears to have formulated a design, which will be the standard over the next few flagship phones. The Samsung Galaxy S5 and the Galaxy Note 3 are not very different from each other due to this factor. The Galaxy Note 4 is not expected to deviate from the design format too much. It could retain the water and dust resistant features of the Galaxy S5.
The 32 GB version of the Galaxy Note 3 is priced at around $150 on contracts, while the Galaxy Note 4 is expected to be launched in September.
